COPD Flu Shot Stem Cells

Flu Season is Here and Patients with COPD Should Get a Flu Shot

Flu season in the United States starts in October and ends in May but is at its peak from December through February. Most people who get the flu will suffer from a mild illness and recover within two weeks without medical care or antiviral drug treatment. Unfortunately, patients with COPD are at a high risk of developing flu complications that can result in hospitalization and possibly death due to pneumonia, bronchitis, sinus infections or other flu-related complications. The flu can also worsen symptoms of COPD. Until recently there has not been published data to support the benefit of flu shots for patients with COPD.
